for international citizens, only for u.s. dissention, although of course there are problems with that. jay carney the white house press secretary says as far as angela merkel, the white house didn't know about angela merkel's bugging until this summer and he put a stop to that. that's in contradiction to german reports that president obama knew about this as far back to 2010 and fast-tracked that to the white house. here is what jay carney the white house press secretary was prepared to say. >> we are conducting a review. we are mindful that some of these disclosures have caused tension in our relationships. we deal with those issues through diplomatic channels and we are in direct communication with a number of countries on these matters. >> interesting. i suppose we're going to have to wait and see what all of that actually means. meanwhile there is a parliamentary delegation talking to congressional members about the spying program. is this a gesture that the europeans are not happy or are they actually trying to achieve something from this visit? >> this is a delegation from the european parl
was quiet, not commenting on the spy scandal. press secretary jay carney said that there may need to be additional constraints placed on america's spy agencies. >> there are a number of efforts underway designed to increase transparency, work with congress to look at reforms of the patriot act. to look at ways that we can increase oversight, increase constraints on the authorities provided by these programs. separately, there is a review underway that will look at, among other issues, some of the very specific things in regards to the intelligence gathering. including matters that deal with heads of state and other governments. >> joining me from washington is our correspondent. president obama is under pressure and letting his press secretary do the talking for him. what else to jay carney have to say? >> these were carefully worded statements from mr. carney. they say they do not and they will not monitor communications, but no mention of previous communications in the past. and striking a careful balance as well. they say they do extraordinary work protecting americans at home
: it's interesting. jay carney walked out and near the top of this daily briefing say all this has been fixed, verizon had it up and running by 7:00 a.m. this morning. but while the briefing was going on, i was checking social media, and various people were insisting that jay carney was wrong, that in fact they were trying to log on, to some of the exchanges and could not get on and were getting the error message you just showed, system not working. so i asked jay carney, what was true and what was not. take a listen. >> how can you say at 7:00 a.m. this morning it was back up and running? how can people be confident -- >> obviously i'm not online right now, ed, or people who are e-mailing you, but what verizon at the aremark announced they successfully resolved the issue with the network component overnight, and taz of 7:00 a.m., the data services hub was fully operational. i'm sure the people who are working -- well, i didn't say that. i said i'm sure the people who are working on the issue are addressing the kind of questions you just raised if that's the case. >> reporter: one of ma
to determine how to carry those out. white house spokesman jay carney warned that critics of nsa surveillance should be careful what they wish for. >> we're one attack away from assessments about what went wrong in our intelligence capabilities and collections. the work that's being done here saves lives. >> reporter: whether listening in on the leaders of close allies such as german chancellor merkel saves lives, the white house didn't have an answer. though it confirmed it is reassessing such high level surveillance as part of its overall intelligence review. on the hill today, european lawmakers went head-to-head with congressional leaders on nsa spying. the head of the delegation told me their discussion was frank. >> you had a very stern message to deliver. >> i think we had a very robust and strong message when we came to congress today. this bill which has come through the allegations is something that's [ inaudible ]. they feel very uneasy. they don't know why it's happening, why our strongest ally is doing it. >> reporter: today, they had more to talk about regarding spain, where the
jay carney told reporters today that although the nsa surveillance was made legal by the patriot act, greater oversight transparency and constraints might be necessary. he went on to say that president obama has ordered his administration to conduct a review of nsa surveillance programs. that response is not acceptable to world leaders who have been monitor. two other countries have fallen under the watchful eye of the nsa and are now in the process of drafting a u.n. general assembly resolution to look at the rules of the road moving forward. latin american and european diplomat said that brazil and germany are leading an effort to guarantee online privacy to civilians around the world. our correspondent joins me now with the latest. tell us which countries are involved in drafting this solution. >> germany and brazil are certainly spearheading the whole operation at the united nations, -- understandably with the newest allegations of tapping the phone of german chancellor angela merkel and as well as the canceled trip by brazil. she basically said that whatever the u.s. has underwa
careful the tense is here is right. jay carney's announcement we don't do it now, we didn't do it before. english teachers across america are smiling at that lesson. they never said we will never do it again or never did it in the past. >> i want to switch gears to obama care. the white house has been facing a lot of criticism over the roll out and the problems they are seeing. what are the consequences if they don't get this fixed soon. >> they have three or four weeks. you can't ask american people to do something they can't do. you are in this case and i know those bites you were playing earlier, the president saying you won't have to lose your insurance, you don't want to hand your enemies sound bites that they will beat you over the head later. get it cleaned up in the next couple of weeks. >> do you think that's the time we're talking about weeks not months? >> it's a few weeks. the president is saying by the end of move to. if they can pull that off probably we'll judge this plan on whether it provides better health care for americans and not the commuter glitches. boy, if it goes
) besides, we aren't even doing it, right, white house spokesman jay carney? >> i can tell you that the president assures the chancellor that the united states is not monitoring and will not monitor the communications of the chancellor. >> stephen: kay? (laughter) we are not and will not that takes care of the present and the future and there's no other time periodic think of. >> the u.s. has been listening to merkel's cell phone since 2002. >> stephen: oh, the past? who cares! (laughter) you know what they say about those who forget hisly. i don't and i'm pretty happy about it. (laughter) and even if we did listen in on angie merkel's cell phone, we have a damn good reason. i mean, just ask n.s.a. chief and first attempt by student taxidermist general keith alexander. (laughter) explaining who we are and targeting just who we are targeting with these programs. >> who are they spying on? >> we're going after terrorists with those programs. >> stephen: okay? we're going after terrorists so all we're saying is angela merkel is a terrorist. why doesn't she want us to listen to her
've heard from carney briefly today, jay carney here. but the relationship the president has particularly with angela merkel, any kind of deal making? >> it makes it difficult and it certainly would give germany leverage to some degree in some of these discussions because the u.s. is in a position where it was caught doing something it had not previously acknowledged it was doing. how this ultimately plays out is a little difficult. we're still in early days since the revelations and sometimes these things do calm down a little bit. however, as we've seen with the snowden revelations they seem to gain momentum over time. what will be the main challenge for the obama administration is how to sort of restore this trust that germany and some of the other european leaders have talked about because they still do need germany to work with them on lots of key national security and economic issues. >> siobhan gorman, thank you very much. intriguing report. >>> developing as well right now, we're learning that a british man is under arrest in england charged with hacking into u.s. government compu
secretary jay carney on friday was questioned about nsa spying of the german chancellor. >> i want to follow up on your comment in yesterday's briefing about how the u.s. is not and will not monitor german chancellor angela merkel's communications. objectedn berlin have to that answer because you have not said whether they been monitored in the past. has the u.s. monitor the chancellor's calls in the past? >> we will not comment on every possibility. as i mentioned yesterday, the president spoke with chancellor merkel, reassured her the u.s. is not and will not monitor the chancellor's communications. >> glenn greenwald, your response? >> remember all of the stories we are reporting are based on the nsa's own internal documents, the claim the nsa has fourto itself and to its closest allies when it comes to surveillance programs, which is the u.k., canada, new zealand, and australia. there'sat this point really nobody rational who doubts the veracity of any of these reports. they have proven to be true in every single case. when the documents group or when other evidence proves that chancello
there you see the white house press secretary jay carney strongly defending the nsa surveilance program. if you read between the lines, he wasn't going to confirm the u.s. has been spying on cellphones of angela merkel, the chancellor of germany or other allied leaders but did repeatedly say and this is a relatively new line, there's a whole new technology of trying to prevent terrorism and the u.s. has a responsibility to protect the american people and he kept saying america's allies. the bottom line is -- it's at least in part designed to help them because the u.s. presumably has a better intelligence capability and maybe they can find out about some sort of loom terrorist plot before the respective governments can. he kept talking about the new technology that is available right now. the u.s. needs to protect the american people and america's allies. he kept saying america's allies over and over again. on the other big subject of the day, the latest problems involving the obama care website. he did read that statement that the department of health and human services just released a
increase to be able to do it. >> reporter: white house press secretary jay carney, who is briefing now, says the affordable care act requirement that insurance plans cover things like maternity care and that they have no cap on lifetime expenses is what makes them more expensive. carney says many people will have better insurance or less cost and in some cases people whose cost goes up will receive government tax subsidies that actually reduce what they finally pay. gretchen? >> wendell, thanks so much for providing a lot of those answers for us. >>> speaking of the obama care website, now you see her, now you don't. the smiling young woman featured on obama care's website, guess what? she's gone now. scrubbed out in an apparent web do-over. in her place, the far less eye catching quartet of really brilliant icons. to sign up for obama care. the identity of the woman remains a big secret. hard to believe since most people in washington can never keep a secret. there's some speculation she was scrubbed from the site to keep her safe after she became the target of heated criticism of the
. the nsa denied mr. obama was briefed that far back. while at the white house spokesman jay carney said the president recognizes the need for additional constraints on gathering and using intelligence. >> and we're also reviewing these programs because the president believes it's very important that even as they look to keep america and americans safe, that they do so in a way that reflects the sincere concerns about privacy that americans have and that our allies have. >> back in berlin germany's interior minister would not rule out expelling u.s. diplomats. >> already in july i said during my talks in washington that it would be absolutely unbearable for us if german law was broken on german ground. now it turns out that this was the case. >> reporter: which made it nearly certain that the fallout is far from over and that difficult talks lie ahead. to that end a delegation of u.s. lawmakers plans to journey to brussels soon. >> ifill: we'll have more on how intelligence-gathering is fraying relations with u.s. allies, right after the news summary. penn state university will pay nearl
-- caveat. today jay carney admitted that is no longer true. take a listen. >> from that podium will you admit that when the president said, if you have a plan, you'll get to keep it, that was not true? >> well, let's just be clear. what the president said and what everybody said all along is that they're going to be changes brought about by the affordable care act to create minimum standards of coverage. minimum services that every insurance plan has to provide. >> but the bottom line is, right now, there are 14 million people who buy their plan themselves because they don't get insurance through their employer. those folks are getting cancellation letters around the country. hundreds of thousands of cancellation letters going out. jay carney's opinion is, basically those folks will go into changes and get better insurance in the long run, having better health care, although that leaves occupy the fact of the matter is they're not going to keep their plans as the president had said over and over again. >> that would be, ed, can't believe my white house pass still works, henry in washing
had an exchange with jay carney at the white house today. let's listen to that. >> did the president mislead the american people when he made that comment repeatedly? >> jim, no, the president was clear about a basic fact. if you had insurance that you liked on the individual market and you wanted to keep that insurance, through 2010, 11, 12, 13, and in perpetuity if you wanted it and it was available you could. you were grandfathered in. what no health care reform could envision or responsibly stipulate is any plan that might come along in the next few years would be grandfathered in because that would undermine the basic premise of providing minimum benefits for the american people. >> andrew what about this? should the president have been clearer and not said so categorically if you like your plan you can keep it? >> of course he should have. it's obviously a small proportion of most americans. you can have all sorts of caveats about this. if you really have a bare bones insurance plan that doesn't meet the standards of the aca you're going have to change it. you're going to have
% of individuals would not be able to keep their policies. yesterday white house press secretary jay carney tried to clarify the law and those past remarks from the president. >> what everybody said all along there will be changes brought about by the affordable care act to provide minimum standard of coverage. so it's true that there are existing health care plans on the individual market that don't meet those minimum standards and, therefore, do not qualify for the are affordable care act. >> lisa myers will be on "morning joe" at the top of the hour at 6:00 a.m. some news outside of d.c. to talk about. a federal judge blocked a key part of a texas law toughening access to abortions one day before the law was set to take effect. the judge threw out the portion that required doctors who perform the procedures to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals 30 miles or less away. critics say it would have forced 1/3 of the state's clinics to shut down. wendy davis filibustered the legislation over the sum per the bill ultimately passed and davis is now running for governor against attorney gener
spied on its allies, but at the white house was a hot topic. jay carney said president obama assured angela merkel there is not and will not be any spying on her. this was the reaction when he was asked about leaders of france and japan. >> i just don't have anything more specific about specific alleged operations or conversations the president may or may not have had with foreign leaders. >> the freedom act proposes ending bulk collection of records if not directly linked to terrorism, can did he say stein intelligence or suspected foreign agents. >> one major point was made to surveillance policies, saying everybody else is doing it too. they claim some of the information came from nato allies, not u.s. spying. greece has admitted to spying on the u.s. and others in the 1990's at the hearing. james clapper made it clear the u.s. is in good company. >> you believe that the allies have conducted or at any time any type of espionage activity against the united states of america, our intelligence service leaders or otherwise? >> absolutely. >> he said the white house was aware the n.s.
, the president said they could keep their current plans. >> chris, thank you. speaking of all this, jay carney was just asked about this. the white house daily briefing happeni happening. we're going to tell you what he says the president means by folks keeping their insurance. what's the real deal? that's next. the day we rescued riley was a truly amazing day. he was a matted mess in a small cage. so that was our first task, was getting him to wellness. without angie's list, i don't know if we could have found all the services we needed for our riley. from contractors and doctors to dog sitters and landscapers, you can find it all on angie's list. we found riley at the shelter, and found everything he needed at angie's list. join today at angieslist.com and it feels like your lifeate revolves around your symptoms, ask your gastroenterologist about humira adalimumab. humira has been proven to work for adults who have tried other medications but still experience the symptoms of moderate to severe crohn's disease. in clinical studies, the majority of patients on humira saw significant symptom re
told the germans he didn't know about this. what jay carney said is we are not doing it now, we will not do it in the future. >> it started under president bush but continued under president obama. >> he said he would change things. there is more continuity from president bush to president obama on a lot of security issues than people would have imagined. there is a lot of blow back with the president with his allies. >> george, is it fair to say the rules are changing on spying on our friends, at least? >> a new technology has given government new power. what we know about government is they use the powers they get. i'm more sympathetic to angela merkel than i think brit is. i think to understand it, you have to understand she was born in 1954 in east germany. she grew up in a surveillance state administered by the secret police. you want to understand that, go to a movie. go to see "the lives of others" 2006, won an academy award. the best foreign language films. >> i have seen it. pretty scary. >> so evidently did mr. snowden who reportedly was influenced by this. so did bill
grandfathered in. >> that was white house press secretary jay carney a few moments ago. tomorrow health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius testifies before the house energy and commerce committee. it will be the first time she'll field questions. and joining me now live, senior political editor, mark murray, let's talk about in nbc report and the information we know and confirmation from sten y hoyer that you have individuals that will receive cancellation letters and won't keep their plan. those who bought individual health insurance make up a sliver of the overall market and the law now gives these people more substantial insurance and protections than they have before. that is the fact there but you still have individuals who have gone on the website and see in some cases their premium go up and make it more in return for that but it's not going down well, at least at this point. >> well, it all has to do with tradeoffs under this law and reform. when you look at the toe talty of the affordable care act, the people with preexisting conditions and people who have very expe

, do you agree with jay carney your white house colleague, that it would be awesome if rand paul ran for president in 2016? >> i suspect that the the 2016 republican nomination is going to be awesome no matter who runs. >> okay, dan pfeiffer, thanks very much. >>> let's go to senator rand paul right there. you heard dan pfeiffer say it's going to be an awesome race. are you going to be a part of it? >> we actually are working with the white house and the last time i was with the president i told them there are some things that we can agree on, one, let's let companies bring money back home. we could double the amount of money in infrastructure if we did that and that's something that we could find an agreement on. >> here we go. that's one point that rand paul and the white house could be agreeing on. let's talk about the nsa. we heard dan pfeiffer weigh in on that. he said that clemency for edward snowden isn't under consideration at all, should it be? >> i don't know the facts. i don't know whether any information has been distributed to foreign powers. i'm concerned that the natio

to be lowering expectation. here's press secretary jay carney yesterday before the dismal numbers came out. >> if you're asking me will enrollment be low, the answer is, yes, because that was always going to be the case. martha: live from the white house with more on this, ed henry. it doesn't sound like the administration is on track to enroll its goal of seven million americans in obamacare this year, certainly. >> reporter: right. and what they're trying to do now, martha, is manage expectations. that's what jay carney was doing there. they're trying to compare it to mitt romney's situation oh so many years ago. in the early days people shopped around, talked to their spouse, and then they make a decision closer to january 1st. we'll see how all that pans out. but as you say, these early numbers are embarrassing. it's nothing short of embarrassing for the administration. day one, six people enrolled. and as you say, this is from the administration's own internal notes at the health and human services department. it was released by a republican critic, darrell issa, but he's getting info
, the white house yesterday, jay carney effectively said yes there are some plans that don't meet the minimum standard of the affordable care act. that is, in fact, true. they would say though our plan allows you to get benefits. yes maybe your premium goes up, your deductible goes up but you have more benefits including for mental health. what did the white house tell you >> they basically made the same point. they said look anyone who is losing their insurance is losing their insurance because it doesn't meet our standards. and that this new policy will give people more protection, they can't be dropped because they get sick, they by and large will have a richer package of benefits. the problem is a lot of the folks we talked to who have received these notices first were shocked that they got them because they thought the president had told them they wouldn't but also they didn't like the government telling them what they had to buy. and they in some cases were very happy with the more bear bones policy that they thought met their needs, and cost them less. now there was one individual who
german report that the president actually knew merkel's phone was tapped. and white house spokesman jay carney said the u.s. is just keeping up with new technologies helping keep americans safe. >> if we're going to keep our citizens and our allies safe, we have to continue to stay ahead of these changes. that's what our intelligence community has been doing extraordinarily well. these capabilities are part of the reason we have been able to foil numerous terrorist plots and adapt to a post-9/11 security environment. >>> want to take the story straight to our chief washington correspondent, host of "the lead," jake tapper. you talked to dick cheney. we know cheney was at the center of setting up this post-9/11 spying apparatus. what did he tell you about this? >> well, he was obviously not eager to talk in detail about these programs. and if you look at the documents that edward snowden leaked to various media outlets, it indicates that the surveillance program, some of them started as far back as 2002. i did ask vice president cheney about it because obviously, it was the story of day.
i. white house secretary jay carney said americans should look to the insurers for an explanation. >> part two. >> basically, throw you off that plan telling you after a year or two that it was changing and said, here's your new option because your plan has changed, that that new plan is grandfathered in, how can that be? you can't grandfather a plan in 2010 na didn't come into existence in 2012 or 2011. it's not about fault t. insurers are in the leadup to these marketplaces are doing what they had always done. >> all right, the most heated exchange came when a democratic congressman took issue with republicans that suggesting they've offered an alternative to obama care. take a look. >> we lost the policy fight and what did we do? we went back to our districts and we told our seniors although we voted no, we personally believe and we'll work with the bush administration to make it work. that's what we did and how many of you stood up to do that? none. zero. zero. >> well, will the gentleman yield? >> yes, i will. >> i will just tell you. >> where are you? >> right here. you aske
that the president never considered releasing him. the question was placed the jay carney yesterday. here is his response. [video clip] replacing hillary clinton for joe biden. >> it is important to know that campaigns and posters test a lot of things. what i can tell you without a doubt is that the president never considered that and, had anyone brought that idea to him, he would have left it out of the room. that former chief of staff bill daley said as much this morning. and here's why. joe biden has been an asset to this president into campaigns and throughout five years of this administration. whether it was handling the implementation of the recovery, handling the very sensitive and important portfolio of iraq in the first term or his key role in working with congress on some important negotiations, joe biden has been an excellent partner in the president's view. and then, as a candidate, i think, if you look at the role he played in 2012 when you look debate,ob he did in his i think there is little doubt that he was an enormous asset to the entire cause and enterprise. that is how the pre
secretary jay carney. he said, kate, this is conflating disparate issues. >> brianna, thank you so much for that update. let's stay at the white house. the white house is responding to deadline pressure clarifying that americans will have until march 31st to sign up for obama care. this as the president's advisers are fighting back against another claim and denying that millions of people would lose coverage because of obama care. chief medical correspondent dr. sanjay gupta is joining us from atlanta. for more on this. a lot of confusion it seems like was created yesterday, sanjay. what are you hearing about the reports that millions of americans could be losing their existing coverage because that was a claim you heard over and over again from the president when he was campaigning for it. if you like your doctors and insurance plan, you can keep it. >> well, here's the bottom line. you have about 15 million people who buy insurance on their own right now, meaning they're not getting it through their employer. it's that population of people we're talking about specifically. what has ha
